Encouraging Words 1/19/10-A Report on the Gay Christian Network Conference

Our friends at the Gay Christian Network got some very positive recognition from the website Change.org:

Gay Christians aren't willing to sit at the back of the bus any longer (or, well, make that the tail end of the pews). Case in point, a conference in Nashville last week that drew hundreds willing to put their sexual orientation where their religion is.

We hear a lot about ex-gay ministries. We see religious groups like the National Organization for Marriage or the institutional Catholic Church extolling the virtues homophobia.

But it's equally important to remember that there's a huge population of folks who practice a theology that says it's not only OK to be LGBT, it's something religion should embrace. That was the meme put forward by the Gay Christian Network during their gathering last week. One mega evangelical star, Tony Campolo, spoke at the event, and he asked the crowd to remember what Jesus said about homosexuality.
